Versace Necklace Stolen Using a Fishing Rod

 

When the owner of Le Style in Melbourne, Australia found out that an $800 piece of jewelry was stolen in his store, he was quite impressed. It turns out, the unidentified man only used a fishing rod to steal from the high-end fashion store. In the CCTV footage, the man was seen looking around to make sure nobody was watching him. After that, he slid his fishing rod through the hole, which he made earlier, and underneath the necklace on the mannequin’s neck to remove it.

According to All That’s Interesting, a site for curious people who want to know more about what they see on the news or read in history books, the authorities discovered that the man wasn’t able to catch the jewelry during his first try. He patiently stayed there for about three hours before catching the necklace. “I couldn’t believe it. Three and a half hours, with two rods, trying to get this necklace, was amazing. Hook, line, and sinker, I guess. He did it,” Le Style owner Steven Adigrati said. 

“It’s pretty outrageous and courageous. To think he went back once, then twice, with a fishing rod and a hook, to make a little hole in the window then capture that necklace, I was pretty shocked,” he added.

Fortunately, the thief left one clue that could help authorities crack the case: a hook from his fishing line. Aside from that, a CCTV footage identified his face: white, 40 to 50 years old, short-haired, and about 5’9. They released the suspect's description and footage of the crime publicly, encouraging people to come forward with a tip.

Also, the Medusa necklace the man stole wasn’t worth as much as he likely thought. “This particular necklace looks a lot more expensive than what it is, so obviously the temptation was there: gold, bright, iconic Medusa head, so that would have been the temptation,” Adigrati said.
